Asked by Therealpokemonmaster

If you have found a lost puppy, try to locate its owner by checking for tags or contacting local animal shelters. If you are unable to find the owner, consider taking the puppy to a vet for a check-up and to scan for a microchip. You can also reach out to local animal rescues for assistance in finding the puppy a new home if needed.

Roly-poly, pell mell, and tumble-bumble, but the other was never named which always irritated me.

The true answer to the question about Poky's brothers and sisters names are as follows. Polly, Penny, Pickles, Pat, and of course Poky. They all start with a P, two sisters and two brothers. To confirm this read the book: "The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas".

The words roly-poly, pell-mell, and tumble-bumble describes how the puppies go down the hill to get to the Poky little puppy, they are not names.

How often do dogs go in heat?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Female dogs go through a heat cycle, called estrus, on average every six months. However, this varies from animal to animal. She will have proestrus, or a bleeding cycle, before her true heat cycle during which she is very receptive to the advances of male dogs. This heat cycle lasts for several days up to three or four weeks. This heat cycles goes on unless you spay your dog. ---------- If you have an unaltered female who is going into heat you should be aware of all proper precautions, legal and moral responsibilities. Taking care of a female dog in heat can be very messy and so you will need to acquire several "dog bloomers" and replacement pads as well as cleaners, deodorizers, etc.

A female who is in heat cannot be sterilized until they have completed their cycle:

For safety reasons, dogs "in heat" (estrus) will not be operated upon until the cycle has ended. This usually is approximately 14 days after swelling has subsided. Female cats in heat can be spayed during their cycle. Source: Affordable Spay Neuter Clinic.

A female in heat may attract male dogs from near and far; leading to lots of visits of strays or neighborhood dogs who get out. It will mean you cannot take your dog to most dog parks and walking will be much more a chore as you watch out for amorous suitors.

Many local animal control ordinances basically put all the responsibility on the owner of the female in heat. For example the ordinance for Hillsborough County Florida states: The owner of a female dog or cat in heat (estrus) shall humanely confine such dog or cat in a building or proper enclosure so as to make her inaccessible to any male dog or cat, except for controlled, intentional permitted breeding purposes. When not in a proper enclosure, such dogs or cats shall be under the direct supervision of a responsible individual so that the dog or cat is not allowed to unintentionally come into contact with a male dog or cat and breed. Sterilization, especially before first estrus, greatly reduces the chance of several diseases and prevents unintended breeding and adding to the pet overpopulation problem.

The Humane Society of the United States publishes this information on their website at: http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_caremyths_and_facts_about_spaying_and_neutering.html

= Myths and Facts About Spaying and Neutering = MYTH:My pet will get fat and lazy. FACT: The truth is that most pets get fat and lazy because their owners feed them too much and don't give them enough exercise. MYTH: It's better to have one litter first. FACT: Medical evidence indicates just the opposite. In fact, the evidence shows that females spayed before their first heat are typically healthier. Many veterinarians now sterilize dogs and cats as young as eight weeks of age. Check with your veterinarian about the appropriate time for these procedures. MYTH: My children should experience the miracle of birth. FACT: Even if children are able to see a pet give birth-which is unlikely, since it usually occurs at night and in seclusion-the lesson they will really learn is that animals can be created and discarded as it suits adults. Instead, it should be explained to children that the real miracle is life and that preventing the birth of some pets can save the lives of others. MYTH: But my pet is a purebred. FACT:So is at least one out of every four pets brought to animal shelters around the country. There are just too many dogs and cats-mixed breed and purebred. MYTH: I want my dog to be protective. FACT: Spaying or neutering does not affect a dog's natural instinct to protect home and family. A dog's personality is formed more by genetics and environment than by sex hormones. MYTH: I don't want my male dog or cat to feel like less of a male. FACT: Pets don't have any concept of sexual identity or ego. Neutering will not change a pet's basic personality. He doesn't suffer any kind of emotional reaction or identity crisis when neutered. MYTH: But my dog (or cat) is so special, I want a puppy (or kitten) just like her.FACT: A dog or cat may be a great pet, but that doesn't mean her offspring will be a carbon copy. Professional animal breeders who follow generations of bloodlines can't guarantee they will get just what they want out of a particular litter. A pet owner's chances are even slimmer. In fact, an entire litter of puppies or kittens might receive all of a pet's (and her mate's) worst characteristics. MYTH: It's too expensive to have my pet spayed or neutered. FACT: The cost of spaying or neutering depends on the sex, size, and age of the pet, your veterinarian's fees, and a number of other variables. But whatever the actual price, spay or neuter surgery is a one-time cost-a relatively small cost when compared to all the benefits. It's a bargain compared to the cost of having a litter and ensuring the health of the mother and litter; two months of pregnancy and another two months until the litter is weaned can add up to significant veterinary bills and food costs if complications develop. Most importantly, it's a very small price to pay for the health of your pet and the prevention of the births of more unwanted pets. MYTH: I'll find good homes for all the puppies and kittens. FACT: You may find homes for all of your pet's litter. But each home you find means one less home for the dogs and cats in shelters who need good homes. Also, in less than one year's time, each of your pet's offspring may have his or her own litter, adding even more animals to the population. The problem of pet overpopulation is created and perpetuated one litter at a time.

My chihuahua just had one puppy?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This is called a singleton puppy. It is not unusual for a dog to give birth to one puppy, but it is uncommon. The average litter is about six puppies, but some dogs may have more or less.

Singleton puppies lack the companionship of literates, so they often grow up confused about their position in the "pack", may be over-playful because of the lack of playmates it had as a puppy and may be a little snappy because it didn't have siblings to test its "strength" on (which is a perfectly normal thing for puppies to do).
This behaviour is not the fault of the puppy. You can try to find a sibling for the singleton puppy by adopting a stray puppy.

What do you do if your new puppy is constipated?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Be sure and read the important note below before trying any of these methods. If your dog is experiencing constipation on a regular basis you should add roughage to his diet such as canned pumpkin (not pie filling kind) or Metamucil. A spoon full of pumpkin on the dog's food should keep his bowels hydrated and his feces soft enough to pass.

A spoon of mineral oil on his food can also be used but should not be used all the time.

There are two methods I use for young puppies, which may work on your dog. I first try lubricating a rectal thermometer and take the puppies temperature. This frequently stimulates the puppy into going. If this fails and you have a nasal bulb syringe (aspirator), you can put warm water in it and gently squeeze a small amount into the rectum and see if this doesn't help.

You can use a children's glycerin suppository depending on the size of your dog but the other methods are what I recommend you try first.
